Reviews

8.9 Paper Moon Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.869)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Paper Moon Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Paper Moon Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.833 for Paper Moon Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (180 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.833

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.036 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Paper Moon Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.286

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Paper Moon Day Nursery

My little one attended this nursery and it was outstanding. My son is a stroke victim and also has an autism diagnosis so I was really worried about letting him go. The management of Paper Moon amongst other staff really worked to make me and my child feel comfortable. They made sure he had 1:1 funding and catered to his needs amazingly. My child loved attending there and I will miss all the staff deeply.

I am thoroughly impressed by the nursery management and my daughter's key worker. I was very emotional about leaving her and it took 2 months to settle her in. The staff were excellent and surprised us both, professionally and with compassion. The nursery is impeccably clean and ordered. I was impressed by the educational standards and food options.

This nursery is fantastic. The staff are friendly (can't do enough for the development of our child). Every day our child is at nursery she comes away a bit more confident, she has developed some great bonds and is very interactive with the challenges set. Marvellous care, support and development provided at a top notch nursery.

We are so lucky to have found this nursery. It's in a very convenient location, close to work and home.
We cannot fault this nursery, staff are absolutely brilliant, both professional and friendly. We can leave our daughter and feel confident she will be very well looked after.
Thank you to the manager and all the staff at the Paper Moon Nursery!

My first child started at Paper Moon Day Nursery in September. I thought that the process of leaving my child at nursery for the first time would be horrible but it wasn't. The nursery allowed me to have as many settling in sessions that I felt that my child and I needed. When I first left my child for the entire day I felt completely comfortable that they would be well cared for by the fantastic staff. I was not wrong. It only took a few short weeks for my child to settle in and now they absolutely love coming to Paper Moon. When we get to the car park they can't wait to get out of the car. All of the staff and facilities are excellent.

Both daughters have attended the nursery from baby unit onwards. They have not only been taken care of but have also been loved by the staff team.

The team work hard to have a partnership with parents and use this to effectively link the child's life in and outside of the nursery. They are also exceptionally supportive and flexible. In terms of preparedness for school entry, something you don't always consider when looking for a place for your baby. I cannot praise highly enough, from the routines to the individual focus on the children.

I was so worried about leaving my daughter to go back to work. She was 4 months when she started a few trial sessions to ease her in at Paper Moon and started 3 and half days a week when she was 5 months. She settled so well with the staff, I had no worries when it came for me to actually go back to work. She has progressed so quickly while at nursery due to the staff encouraging and reviewing her developmentally. She is currently weaning and the nursery has met her needs exactly. Even trying a few new ideas I hadn't thought of, they're great! Her next stage is crawling and Paper Moon are encouraging her to become more and more active. She really enjoys going to nursery and we can tell she is well loved. She hasn't cried once when dropping her off, something I was not looking forward to but she loves the social there and she gets excited to go in. I would recommend Paper Moon to anyone looking for loving and nurturing childcare.

From the first visit to Paper Moon, I was struck by how much the children like the staff, and vice versa. The whole place is happy, colourful, full of toys, and it has a big outdoor play area with loads of different areas for the kids to explore. All the staff have been wonderful. Our child has just moved into the tots room, & the transition was handled really well, with visits to the room & a new key worker quickly assigned. For me, choosing this nursery came down to a few key items:

- There are 4 rooms to progress through rather than 3: I felt each child's developmental stage would be more appropriately catered to
- The staff are all very kind & genuinely interested in the children - my child is not lacking in cuddles!
- The nursery makes a real effort to celebrate the customs of other cultures through themed days, & is generally more multicultural than other nurseries we looked at
- The outdoor area is big
- All the children I saw while visiting were very happy, and still are!

The environment at this nursery is warm and friendly and my son experiences a sense of belonging and is acknowledged and encouraged by all. My son has a developmental delay and the manager at this nursery has been very supportive and applied for funding facilitating additional one to one support for several hours a week for him. Since attending his speech, fine and gross motor skills and confidence have dramatically developed and he knows all the names of the staff and talks with animation about them all at home. My son looks forward to attending.

Amazing place. It's a 'home from home'. My son loves it. There is plenty for the children to do and I genuinely feel that the staff care about the children. The nursery has always been on hand to help me as a parent as well. Can't recommend enough. I will be sad when my little one has to go to school.

My son has been attending this nursery since he was 9 months old and he absolutely loves the nursery. He has very good, strong relationships with the workers and he always looks forward to going there in the morning; both of these things for us as parents are very important.

My son has food allergies, which the nursery has been very good at accommodating, and have been flexible when the allergies have been challenging.

The nursery is keen to encourage creative play, often involving things from home being taken in for the children to enjoy and share experiences.

I would recommend this nursery and would be open to using any of the Paper Moon Day Nursery if I had to base this on our experience of the Compton Acres site.

My daughter loves going to nursery at Paper Moon - the staff care so much about the kids they look after, make food she loves and play games, sing songs, etc. It's a lovely atmosphere. I'm a single parent and management are very flexible when it comes to booking additional time at late notice, which I really appreciate - it never feels like it's any trouble. My favourite thing of all is how they handle events and birthdays - there's often a little party going on and my daughter probably now knows more Christmas songs than I do! Paper Moon really gives my daughter and I the support we need - it's wonderful to be able to take her somewhere I know she'll have lots of fun and be well cared for.

The most important thing when putting my child in daycare was that he was happy and I can honestly say my son loves coming to this day nursery. The staff are a lot of fun and genuinely love the children in their care. The staff can't do enough to help and are very approachable if any issues do arise.

I have been so happy with the care my daughter receives at Paper Moon. She has been there since she was a baby and is now in the Butterfly (pre-school) room. My daughter has a rare syndrome which causes developmental delay, behavioural problems, learning and communication difficulties to name but a few. The staff at the nursery have taken her in and loved her as if she were their own. They have helped her in so many ways.....learning to socialise, communicate, follow rules and routines and she is even beginning to recognise numbers and letters. They have played a huge part in toilet training her recently which we didn't think she would do but with Paper Moon's help and support she's done it! I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for her and for supporting us as a family through what have been some challenging years for us. We will be sad to say goodbye in September.
